Today’s news:

Queens College soccer ranked sixth in preseason

TimesLedger Newspapers

Coming off a triumphant 2011 campaign in which they surprised their ECC rivals by reaching the conference playoffs, the Knights are looking to build on their success in 2012.

Although the team said farewell to eight talented veterans, the addition of 12 new recruits will help QC to continue forward-progress without missing a beat. This diverse group of new players — local, international, freshman and transfer — will cover all positions, adding both depth and new energy to the squad.

Team captain and All-American Danny Stoker will lead the new-look Knights along with returning juniors Metri Abdul-Karim and Tyler Iocco.

The Knights hope the combination of veteran experience and incoming talent will be the formula needed to reach the national tournament for the first time in the program’s history.
